Looks like SRM launchers are in the side torsos

When this is done, 2 questions;  1) Is when this is coming out 2)  Is this will be in MW5?

Crusader - the first new 'Mech since July 2019.



When this is done, 2 questions;  1) Is when this is coming out 2)  Is this will be in MW5?
1) We do not know. Some announcement will follow.

2) Hard to say. Hatchetman is for MechWarrior 5: mercenaries, since there is no physical combat in MWO.

Crusader is for MWO, but I think that it could be in MW5:Mercs too. The only problem could be the different game engine in MW5: Mercs.

  • The Inner Sphere could always use more Heroes!
I keep looking at the cockpit and still not being able to decide whether I like it.

The "backpack" seems kind of scrawny, proportionally it looks like it's the same size as the Phoenix Hawk's transplanted to a design 20 tons of heavier.

I also don't know what's going on with the little ballerina feet.

Overall a solid take on the design let down by a few weird choices.

  • How can a bird be sultry? Very carefully.
It looks like they based the feet off of the P-Hawk's, which makes sense considering what the Crusader cribbed art from before.

Given the common lineage in the origins of the designs (if not one acknowledged in canonical BT fluff) I don't have a problem with them looking similar in certain ways. It's the seeming lack of proportionate scaling that bothers me.

Yeah, am I am not a fan of the head of the Mech. I guess they had to make it different from the original and current versions.

Keep in mind that this is just a concept art.

The actual in-game model might be different. You know, different proportions of the 'Mech because the modeller has a different idea how the 'Mech should appear, some changes due to the modelling work and 'Mech animation requirements, etc.

Checking Phoenix Hawk in the 'Mechlab shows some similarity.   :)
